Trump Tweets Praise of Fox News Guest Who Called John Brennan ‘A Stain on the Country’

President Donald Trump took to Twitter Wednesday evening to share criticism about ex-CIA director John Brennan that he heard on Fox News. “’John Brennan is a stain on the Country, we deserve better than this.’” Former Secret Service Agent and author of new book, ‘Spygate, the Attempted Sabotage of Donald J. Trump,’ Dan Bongino,” Trump wrote, referring to the conservative commentator and frequent Fox News guest. He added: “Thank you Dan, and good luck with the book!” Bongino’s comments came during a discussion of Trump’s decision to yank Brennan’s security clearance just one day after Brennan criticized him on both Twitter and MSNBC citing Brennan’s “erratic behavior.” Speaking to the Wall Street Journal earlier today, Trump pushed back on criticism of his decision, telling the WSJ, “[I] would put a Republican on, too, if I thought they were incompetent or crazy.” Brennan also spoke Continue reading "Trump Tweets Praise of Fox News Guest Who Called John Brennan ‘A Stain on the Country’"

Hannity to Ingraham Amid Latest Controversy: ‘Do You Have to Get in Trouble Every Week?’

Sean Hannity may have cut a little deeper than he intended with a comment to his Fox News colleague Laura Ingraham. As is custom, Hannity threw to Ingraham at the conclusion of his broadcast, and the two — as they often do in these casual chats — needled each other a bit. But then, Hannity made a comment which he seemed to mean in jest — but one which the 10 P.M. host did not seem to appreciate. “Are you gonna get in trouble every week on the air?” Hannity said. “Do you have to get in trouble every week?” Hannity, of course, was referring to the latest in a series of controversies involving Ingraham — the fallout over comments she made last Wednesday on her show about “massive demographic changes” in the U.S. “[I]n some parts of the country, it does seem like the America Continue reading "Hannity to Ingraham Amid Latest Controversy: ‘Do You Have to Get in Trouble Every Week?’"

Fox News Contributor Says Giuliani, Sekulow Guest-Hosting for Hannity Is a ‘New Level of Coziness’

Fox News contributor Guy Benson said on MediaBuzz today he was a little stunned by President Donald Trump‘s lawyers filling in for Sean Hannity on the radio. Rudy Giuliani and Jay Sekulow guest-hosted Hannity’s radio program, raising a number a baffling questions about the Trump-media nexus. Benson first noted that Giuliani gives very “colorful interviews,” noting the problems that have arisen so far from his constant media appearance. He specifically recalled Giuliani’s last-minute call-in to Outnumbered after Benson, who was guest-hosting, raised some issues about comments he made earlier in the day. Kurtz noted the radio guest-hosting gig, to which Benson said this:
“That was extraordinary. I had to do a double take when I saw that first reported. Hannity––look, we know that Hannity is very cozy with Team Trump. That’s no secret, and no one’s trying to say otherwise. Having the Trump… legal team guest host your radio Continue reading "Fox News Contributor Says Giuliani, Sekulow Guest-Hosting for Hannity Is a ‘New Level of Coziness’"

Jeanine Pirro to Robert Mueller: ‘Give up Your Phony Investigation’ and Get Your Own Defense Lawyer

On Friday, while subbing for Sean Hannity on his Fox News show, Judge Jeanine Pirro asked the panel, “Is Mueller a greater threat than [Russian President Vladimir] Putin to this country?” As it turns out, that question was just her warm-up act. During the opening monologue of her own show Saturday night, Pirro unraveled a massive conspiracy-laden yarn involving Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska, the FBI and Hillary Clinton that painted Mueller as the one who should really be seeking a criminal defense attorney. “Why did it take us four months to find out why you fired Peter Strzok?” Pirro said during a lengthy and winding accusation of Mueller who she repeatedly referred to as “Bob.” “Why would you ask for millions of dollars from a Russian oligarch, banned from the United States, to fund an FBI operation? Should you even have asked the oligarch for tens Continue reading "Jeanine Pirro to Robert Mueller: ‘Give up Your Phony Investigation’ and Get Your Own Defense Lawyer"

Trump’s Legal Team to Guest Host Sean Hannity’s Radio Show on Friday

Give them this — President Donald Trump‘s lawyers, Rudy Giuliani and Jay Sekulow, are not hiding. Earlier in the week, the latter day legal dream team connected for a live chat on Sekulow’s daily radio show. The two apparently enjoyed their time together on air so much that on Friday, they’re going to host a full show together. Sean Hannity was more than happy to offer his platform to the attorneys. Sekulow and Giuliani (they’ll need a catchier name than that if they want to catch on as a radio duo) will fill-in hosting The Sean Hannity Show on Friday afternoon to scores of affiliates across the country. Hannity tweeted out the news on Friday morning.

Hannity Slams MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow for Pushing ‘Bizarre Anti-Trump Conspiracy Theories and Lies’

In the opening of his Thursday night show, Fox News’ Sean Hannity slammed MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow for her peddling of conspiracy theories and lies. With the chyron blaring “Maddow delivers a dud,” Hannity said this about the MSNBC host who last night reported on audio she obtained of Rep. Devin Nunes‘ damaging comments made during a GOP fundraiser:
Don’t expect, by the way, to hear any of this over at conspiracy TV MSNBC where their top, left of Mao — their words — conspiracy theorist Rachel Maddow is pushing, and busy pushing, more bizarre anti-Trump conspiracy theories and lies. This is 24/7. Tom Brokaw, pay attention, this is your NBC News. And last night’s show, well, she broke another bombshell report because there is a secret recording from the House Intel committee chairman Devin Nunes where he warned about the consequences if Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats take Continue reading "Hannity Slams MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow for Pushing ‘Bizarre Anti-Trump Conspiracy Theories and Lies’"

MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace Bashes Giuliani’s Mueller Probe Attacks: ‘Rudy Needs to Check His Carbon Monoxide Monitors’

MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace didn’t mince words during her evening broadcast Thursday, calling out Rudy Giuliani‘s attacks on the Russia probe and suggesting they were the remarks of someone suffering from carbon monoxide poisoning. Giuliani, who serves as President Donald Trump‘s personal attorney, defended his client Wednesday during an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, arguing the Special Counsel Robert Mueller‘s investigation is a sham perpetrated by Democrats who may be involved in collusion themselves. “Now we have Mueller who doesn’t seem to care that he’s sitting on top of a totally illegitimate investigation,” Giuliani said. “Maybe if Mueller and his band of whatever they are– Democrats, right –were fair-minded, maybe they’d investigate. Maybe that’s the collusion.” Wallace saw it as nothing more than a diversion tactic meant to skew attention away from the president; however, her criticism in response to Giuliani’s remarks soon became personal.
